Hashcat RAM usage

Hello guys, 

I have noticed that my RAM usage is extremely high when running hashcat, while the GPU is chilling at 1%. 

Do you have any idea why this happening and is it normal to operate like this?

Thanks in advance.
we need more details of course:

- full command (without posting hashes of course)
- system details (CPU, GPU make/model)
- do you see the hashcat process in the task manager ? try only inspecting the hashcat process instead of cmd.exe
etc etc etc
hashcat -m 2500 -w 3 --status my.hccapx -a 6 wordlist.txt ?d?d?d --self-test-disable

System details:
3.4 ghz intel cpu
8 GB ddr4 RAM
Asus Radeon RX 470 4 GB GPU

Yes I see it.
Why are you using --self-test-disable? If hashcat fails to start otherwise your driver is probably broken which is an issue you need to fix…
